This Video Goes Some Way To Explaining Why Thai Roads Are The Deadliest On The Planet

Published on 13th November 2018 by Stickboy BKK

In 2017 Thailand was named the “Country With The Highest Road Traffic Death Rate” in a report from World Atlas.

According to the report, Thailand has an average of 36.2 road deaths per 100,000 citizens, which is the highest in the world. Last year around 22,000 people, an average of 50 to 60 a day, died in road accidents.

Horrific and we all know it.

Every day there’s a new viral video of a deadly crash circulating on social media but the clip below is a little different and goes some way to explaining why Thai roads are the deadliest on the planet.

The John Travolta wannabe shaking his shimmy is drunk as a skunk. At the time of filming he was in a police station under arrest after being caught driving four times over the legal limit.

If this is how potential killers are treated by officers of the law, those death toll numbers aren’t about to drop any time soon.

Why would they?

Get caught driving drunk and you’ll be the cops new pet clown until you sober up. Then you will face a maximum fine of 20,000 baht, which is rare, and/or a year behind bars, which as a punishment for driving over the limit is also rare.

The police officers in the video above should be punished as harshly as the drunken fool entertaining them as they are as much to blame as those driving under the influence when it comes to road deaths in the Kingdom with this sort of attitude towards offenders.

Drunk drivers aren’t clowns, they are criminals and potential killers who should be treated as such by those paid to enforce the laws of the land.

And just in case you were wondering… the footage was filmed by a cop and shared on the official Facebook page of the police station.
